Our Story

Professional Placement is one of UKs leading niche recruitment agency and our teams recruit for permanent, temporary and contract roles in the following sectors: .

Professional Placement started in 2002 on the beautiful island of Cyprus by two people who were passionate about making a difference. They chose the healthcare with a vision to contribute to this sector in a meaningful way. They started in Cyprus where they were strategically well placed to recruit doctors, nurses and allied health professionals into the governmental, as well as private hospitals in the Middle East. They have successfully placed more than 100 candidates per year in temporary and permanent positions. It's been an amazing journey.

Moving to the UK

Professional Placement has now added the social care, criminal justice sector and animal health to their recruitment services in order to help combat the sheer number of unfilled vacancies in the UK.

The workforce crisis in the social care sector has been described as the worst problem currently facing the NHS, and the Care Quality Commission’s State of Care report for 2018/19 said it is having a direct impact on care.

Public safety is also at risk with staff shortages leaving the probation services in crisis.

With our experience and knowledge gained in the healthcare recruitment industry we have the right tools to help meet the demand of these specialised sectors.

This in-depth experience gave us a huge advantage over our competitors and to this day has gained us the trust and respect of clients and candidates alike.

Professional Placement has forged strong long-term relationships with their key clients and offered their recruitment services to a diverse range of clients in governmental, not for profit and private sectors.
